My Parade of Lights ( My Little Own Diwali)

Up and down the lonely road I walked alone.
Only the light of the moon to guide my way.

Far away in the distance,
I can see the parade of Lights.
Floating on those whimsy boats by the bay.

Down the river, they cruise along.
Flimsy vessels of people's hopes.
That somewhere, somehow
They might come true.

Watching those little lights as I got near
I uttered a silent prayer:
"Let the flames burn forever,
Keep the Hopes alive 
Not only for this night."

As I sit by the river's edge,
There's a peace inside of me.
All is well in the world again.
